Estes Park businesses are open during construction
Major construction will take place during non-peak months, January through June and October through December. The purpose of this project is to improve access to and from Rocky Mountain National Park by reducing travel time, congestion and pedestrian and vehicle conflicts through downtown Estes Park, as well as the associated negative impacts to the visitor experience.
When the final configuration is in place, a one-way traffic pattern will exist on Elkhorn Avenue westward from the intersection of Riverside Drive through the intersection at Moraine Avenue, and southward on Moraine Avenue to a new roundabout on Moraine Avenue that connects Crags Drive, Moraine Avenue/US Highway 36 and Riverside Drive. An eastbound one-way traffic pattern will exist from the roundabout, northward on West Riverside Drive over the newly constructed bridge onto East Riverside Drive, which will be a one-way street taking motorists northward back to the intersection of Elkhorn Avenue and Riverside Drive.
